The interns that have been at Nordita have typically contacted one of our scientists and asked if they
would consider to act as their supervisor. The funding, the time spent and the extent of the project
done here at Nordita have varied from case to case.
Nordita cannot provide any funding for bachelor or master student interns. Some earlier master student
interns at Nordita have had scholarships from the Erasmus Mundus or Marie Curie programs.
You should ask your home university for help with applying for these or other sources of funding.
Experience shows that if you have already established some informal agreement with your host (like
Nordita), the bureaucracy surrounding such applications is greatly reduced.
Finding a Supervisor at Nordita
What we would need to know are your interests within theoretical physics, so that we can see if anyone
here might become a suitable supervisor during your internship.
- Look at the list of suggested master student projects to see if any of these would interest you.
- Start by acquainting yourself with the main research areas at Nordita.
Then check the list of Nordita staff members and click on the links for the individual researchers.
There are brief presentations of their research interests there.
and then finally:
- Either contact the Nordita researcher you would like to work with directly, or send a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Internship Time and Duration
As for timing the internship, you can take a look at our list of workshops and longer scientific
programs to see if there is any event in the near future that you might benefit from listening in to
(the level is high, but it never hurts to get immersed in things even if you don't understand
